    Would help if we could do this. Would make looking for potential evenly matched challenges easier.

    you know if we had a better rating system this problem would be solved.....

    Explain to us your genius idea that you have developed during your extensive clan leading.

    the actual rating system is irrelevant to this idea as all ratings are relative across clans

    E.g. Clan A has 3 players, rated 2000, 1500, 1000 = Ave rating = 1500
    Clan B has 2 players only rated 2000, 1000 = Ave rating = 1500

    By showing average rating on the all clans page (it is in the DB as it is on each clans homepage) clan leaders could sort by this to find clans with average ratings and clan size at a close match, and therefore be confident that a matchu-up may be possible.

    Edit - it'd work even better with average 'active' clan rating and 'active' clan size. This would need programming though.

    Why not just do the math yourself in what you are looking for?

    I have 4 players average rating 1500 looking for clan to put up
    4 players average rating 1500?

    Good point. The suggestion would offer a similar advantage to those more challenged in the arena of mental arithmetic than you or I.
